Roman marble throne, known as 'The Biel Throne', from the prohedria of the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens, as built by Herodes Attikos between 140 and 143 AD, on the proper right side is a relief showing an olive tree and a table on which there rests a Panathenaic amphora, containing an olive spray and three wreaths, beneath the table rest two palm branches, the front legs are in the form of owls and the left side is undercorated (as the throne was designed to be set flush against another of which illustrations survive).
